Not all Hard Spritzers / Seltzers are created equal! The meteoric rise of Hard Seltzer in the past few years has had the biggest breweries in the world and multinational beverage corporations rushing any number of products to market to try and capture a piece of the action. The problem is the vast majority of these products are…well, in a word…disgusting. So, with everyone panicking about this “new” genre of alcoholic beverages and scrambling to put out products made with low quality base ingredients…I wondered, there has to be some people making good ones…right!? After a few days of searching online I stumbled across Charlie & Echo. A few things about the brand immediately resonated with me. Winemaker, Eric Van Drunen is the President of the Union of San Diego Urban Wineries and a champion of artisanal and natural winemaking in the region. The base wine for these spritzers is Sauvignon Blanc then a combination of citrus zest and juice from local organic fruit. Next some natural spring water (not purified or reverse osmosis water as is typical) and last but not least a dash of unaged brandy ("brandyshine" as Eric calls it) to raise the proof of the spritzer to 7.1% ABV. Having thoroughly tested out the various editions I can say they’re consistently delicious, unbelievably refreshing and a little too easy to drink! (K&L Domestic Wine Buyer - Ryan Woodhouse)
